First Avenue now serving food at the Depot


First Avenue has been around since 1970, but no matter how many times you've been there, beginning tonight you'll see something you never have before--food!

The club's new bar and restaurant, the Depot (a nod to the location's original use as a Greyhound bus station) opens tonight with casual food and a healthy beer list that features stalwarts like Surly Furious and Bell's Two Hearted Ale on tap, plus 40 others in bottles. Menu offerings include a daytime special of a burger or hot dog with fries and a Honey Weiss for $9.99. Andrew Flanagan has more details on the new digs at City Pages' music blog, Gimme Noise.
